Abstract

The 1/2 and 1/3 bias schemes are commonly used to select a cell in a resistive random access memory (ReRAM) crossbar array. The 1/3 bias scheme is advantageous in terms of its write margin but typically requires a higher power consumption than the 1/2 bias scheme. The power consumption of ReRAM can vary according to the nonlinearity of the selector device. In this paper, we propose a power guideline model that suggests selector nonlinearity requirements to guarantee a lower power consumption for the 1/3 bias scheme than for the 1/2 bias scheme. Therefore, the selector nonlinearity requirements for the low power consumption of the 1/3 bias scheme can be immediately obtained using this guideline model without simulation.
